Tips on keeping well this winter

Heat your home well

Keep rooms heated to a temperature between 18º - 21º C (64º - 70º F)

Dress for warmth

Several layers of clothing will keep you warmer than one thick layer. Stay indoors when it’s cold or if you have to go out, wrap up warmly and wear a hat, scarf and gloves.

Eat well

Try to make sure you have hot meals and drinks regularly throughout the day. Keep a basic store cupboard and freezer items in case bad weather prevents you going out.

Check if your local store provides home deliveries.

Get a flu jab

Flu jabs are free for people over the age of 65, people with long term health conditions or carers for a disabled or older person.

Get financial help

Grants, benefits and advice are available to make your home more energy efficient, improve your heating or help with bills. Don’t lose out, make sure you’re claiming everything you’re entitled to.
